The 2012 Hall of Fame Inductees:
THE 2005 STATE CHAMPION GOLF TEAM
In 2005, the Saints golf team achieved an unprecedented level of success. For the first time in school history one of our teams accomplished a feat against all comers. As there are no divisions at the state level and only one school earns the right to be crowned State Champion. In 2005 our golfers became the first team to win a State Championship.
